This book explores the mysteries beneath New York Citys streets, telling the story of hidden pipes and cables and how they are kept in order. It might be called a Sidewalk Superintendents Guide, but it is much more than that. It is a vivid account of a city in action. The author received the generous cooperation of the engineering personnel of the public utilities and the municipal departments of the city. The text is enhanced by numerous photographs, maps, and diagrams. Harry Granicks Underneath New York was the first book to describe the anatomy of a modern city.
